about the economy, 8.3 fewer americans are working today than there were four years ago, what is your reaction to that? >> well, just shows you how out of touch eghe is. normally when the president is reelected, remember, no landslide. you work together, find common ground and work ford. this person's goal is to break the republican party. he's out of touch where america is at and it's more of a speech after progressive party agenda not something for all of america to get behind. >> sean: how ironic, too, the president lecturing the americans on tone and did you remember of talking about mitt romney and a steel worker's wife? >> and when you work on a president's speech in the inaugural, you usually have a take away line. what is the take away line. normally when the election is over, it's time to govern, he moved the campaign committee going when he can't run for further office. this is what this individual does. he can't govern, but that's what he continues to do is just politics. >> sean: all right, you're a leader of the republican party in the house, one area of government where
not to be a political football that by becoming that, does damage to our economy. >> without any question, obama's real objective is not just obamacare, but it's to eliminate any political opposition, to just wipe them off the map and the media is now telling them not only will they help, but offering advice how to do it. >> who does that look like to you? >> for the past couple of weeks, this is how we've heard about jodi arias. >> do you know who that is? >> it looks like jodi. >> prosecutors working as hard as they can to send her to death row, but tonight, we hear about jodi in a different way. it happens here, her home for now, the maximum security tower in the jail in phoenix. i was given exclusive access to this units and i met jodi. >> how are you feeling. >> this is jodi's room here, a cell. it's a small room, windows at the top and three burnings and only jodi's's in the middle and her roommate's down here. >> to the a tax threat, and nicolas sarkozy and his wife are thinking escaping france to avoid a huge tax. >> and sarkozy and his wife carla bruney except the tax rate of 75% proposed by h
from our economy, particularly for hispanics and african-americans. >> dana, the stock market is at a five-time high -- a five-year high. unemployment is at a five-year low. he says on the one hand he wants to reach out. you can see the shares in the dow jones right now. what is this man talking about? please, translate it because i'm not intelligent enough to understand it. >> there is apparently a bit of a mixed message occurring at the rnc winter meeting. >> in the very brain of the chairman. >> i think bobby jindal had a point where he said we need to stop being the party of austerity. we need to stop saying how good we can be at shrinking and cutting government. that is not a winning message. he's absolutely right about that. and then you have the party here in washington doing exactly what he said not to do, and you have paul ryan coming forward and saying, yes, i'm going to -- we lost the election so i'm actually going to double down on this. i'm going to cut 40% of the federal government out over the next ten years because that's exactly what the people want to hear an
, a growing economy and so many pandas they have been forced to a two panda policy. from now on in china, this is true, only two pandas per family. the place is just ripe with (bleep) pandas. guess what? the grass isn't always greener. >> in china, hazardous record high pollution levels in beijing have prompted an orange fog warning. >> jon: this brings us to the new segment things may be bad but at least we can't chew our air. unemployment is not coming down, the economy is stagnant. let me stop you right there. >> just being outside can make eyes itch and throats burn. >> one expert told me it's becoming an instant motor vehicler. >> jon: s oh, my god, a billion instant smokers. how many marlboro miles could they get? think of china as a wheezing smoker. >> are you expected to talk. >> jon: so, mr. bond, i expect you to -- brb clearing throat] i [clearing throat] [ laughter ] where were we, mr. bond? sorry. [ laughter ] were so gridlocked the senate can't reform the filibuster. stop. >> wash we wipe a thin layer that accumulated on most cars. that is soot and grime. this is my own air
of strengthening the middle class, and creating a equitable domestic economy. and that message is now forming foreign policy as well. senator john kerry laid out his vision at the senate confirmation hearings yesterdays, and it relies as much on economics as diplomasy. >> we know that american foreign policy is not defined by drones and deployments alone. more than ever foreign policy is economic policy. the world is competing for resources in global markets. >> jennifer: the obama/kerry foreign policy doctrine might be it's the economy stupid, and in fact it is really a economic strategy. much of the violence was driven by individuals financial insecurity as a result of the poverty. look at the arab spring which economic grievances lead to political revolution. a fruit selling started that protest by lighting himself on fire. his protest lead to the oh eventually overthrow of a decade's long dictatorship, and since then life has improved for tunisian. here is one union worker describing the change. >> the main benefit of the revolution is the disappearance of the stat
to have more control over our economy, more taxes, more regulations, more spending. there's a fundamental difference between the president's view of our future and reality and so when the president gives an inaugural address and doesn't address the national debt that's how difficult it is to get anything done. >> greta: what is the reasonable expectation for the american people is going to happen. i mean, knowing the president and knowing that he's in power and knowing that democrats are here in power in the senate and republicans in the house and all the people, all the different interests. what's going to happen? >> i think, look, we're going to have to win some elections and get people up here in both chambers that are going to take this issue seriously. >> greta: and all parties. >> i think in our party-- everybody knows it's inevitable. the time will come when we have to deal with the issues and the sooner we deal with it, the better off we'll be. if we deal with them now we deal with them on terms. the longer we wait to save medicare, the more disruptive it's going to be, the more c
economy. incredibly hosni mubarak was ousted from power. however, at this point many egyptians not happy. the people behind us are not celebrating, they're protesting. >> i understand you spoke to a number of protesters. what is the issue here? what is the problem with the new leadership? why are they out on the streets? why are they upset? >> reporter: the opposition, the protesters have many issues. maybe that's one of their obstacles. not finding one issue to unite over. they're concerned because they say they've been pushed out of the political process. they're concerned about their rights. here's what that protester had to tell us. >> everybody is protesting. what did we get since two years? nothing. nothing achieved. >> reporter: the president says be patient. this is part of the process. >> we need a sign. look at the constitution. look at the constitution. is this a constitution for all egyptians? >> reporter: he said people voted on it. >> how many voted? 15 million or 52 million? 10 million said yes and can this be possible? >> reporter: do you trust the president? >> no. >> re
" live from the dubliner coming up. >>> the state of our economy calls for action bold and swift, and we will act, not only to create new jobs but to lay a new foundation for growth. we'll build the roads and bridges, the electric grids and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together. we'll restore science to its rightful place and wield technology's wonders to raise health care's use and lower its cost. >> here we are four years later. why not come back to the dubliner? all you did too. my, lord. the line goes around the block. a wonderful, joyful crowd. thank you all for coming. joining us now with the politico playbook, the politico executive director jim. >> i'm always a dose of sunshine in the morning. you guys were talking about ted cruz and his comments on gun control. i think what people need to realize, ted cruz is a mainstream republican with this senate and this house. his views, he's not on the conserveative edge of the party. that is the party. when you think about the budget, think about gun control -- >> saying the president exploited
that exact point harris saying current conditions could lead the president to repeat himself in 2009. economy remains sluggish healthcare remains too costly, et cetera. one historian interviewed the president from rolling stones magazines says mr. obama needs to revise faith in the american dream. >> i would image if i were writing a speech for him i would inject a dose of ronald reagan optimism don't despair in america. >> follow me at twitter at james rosen and i will tell you which president was the first to have his inaugural address live nationwide. >> i always follow your twitter but i will especially tonight. >> you are always so good to me. >> the political landscape at the part of the term was different than it was when he came to the white house four years ago. republicans control the house. you need look no further than the recent game of political chicken over the fiscal cliff to know just how divided washington is. and more instance show downs are looming. one example the debt creel and controlli -- debt ceiling and what americans describe as out of control spending. what do key
of it is not just about medicaid and spending, it's ultimately getting this economy going again and i think to me, the best way you can do that is by putting more money back in the hands of the american people and not more money back in the hands of the government at the state nor at the local level nor certainly at the federal level and that's part of the discussion and i think many of us as governors are-- >> governor, if i could ask you to stand by for a second. vice-president biden is speaking at the inaugural ball, let's listen. >> sure. >> you all made for in great country of ours and to the troops at camp casey, joining us from across the world in south korea, thank you and i wish you were here with us. we owe you. we owe you all more than we can express and i can't tell you how honored jill and i are that you'd spend the night with us. you, all americans, soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen, coast guardmen, you are the finest warriors the world has ever seen and that's not an exaggeration. this generation (cheers) -- this generation literally is the finest warriors the world has ever seen
the demographics, given the polling, given the economy. they just knew they had won it. and when they found out that they lost the election, they decided to change the rules. and now they what they would do is take the president who carried virginia and give him four electoral votes and give mitt romney nine electoral votes under this plan. even though the president carried virginia, it is a war on virginia voters. we have moved from the war on women to the war on voters. >> do you think you can stop it if that goes forward any further than it has? >> well, we're going to need a lot of help in stopping it, you know. we're going to need folks to write in, to call their legislators. democrats, republicans and independents and say look, fair is fair. and the plans that you all have cooked up to interest virginia voter, they're just not fair. it's truly beneath the dignity of this commonwealth. >> virginia state senator donald mceachin. thank you very much, sir. i appreciate your time. i have a feeling we'll be talking with you as time goes on, as this continues to unfold. thank you. >> and thank y
having about the fiscal cliff and the debt ceiling. the american economy somebody very important to the global economy. we cannot have the kind of nonsense we've had going on in the building behind me and think that that's going to be either good foreign policy or economic policy for around the globe, not just here at home. i think he was trying to remind people we do live in a global economy. it is interconnected and that that does impact our foreign policy and our defenses. >> it clearly does. michael, the outgoing secretary of state said, and i'm quoting her, we are facing a spreading hi hjihadist threat across nort africa. is it your view that the attack on the consulate in libya, the hostage taking at that gas plant in algeria, and the conflict in mali mean that north africa is now the main front for islamic terrorism and how does a new secretary of state confront this? >> great question. i don't know that i would say it's the main front, but it is certainly a serious front and a serious set of interlocked issues. one thing we have to debate on libya, because i've been perp
something to his stewardship. >> with hindsight being 20/20 and the economy they walked in to and kept falling down the hill -- >> right. >> -- even once they get in to office and often there's instability after a new president but major instability -- >> the free fall. >> correct. they had a long way to go to hit the bottom before they could build it back up. >> i'm not sure they knew when they went in to the office. included geithner and summers and roamer. i think they were -- >> didn't do a full house inspection. like bought it sight unseen. >> and then there's mold. >> the pipes are leaking. >> bad news. a lot of maintenance to be done and interesting, geithner's taken probably more heat from the left than from the right. meaning, the administration's as a whole we know is not a favorite of the republican party and the right. but geithner has been a real bugaboo from the left of a perception of a creature of an industry survived and tloohrive and the rest stagnated. i take the view that the economic system, the financial system has a lot of faults and utility and if the lights go
and the noes thtion th inequality is not a necessary component of the economy. and we want to believe all of those issues. and i think what the president was saying, was, look, we have elections. and when you have a full debate in an election and the outcome is pretty clear cut, then it's his obligation and his right to move forward on all of those issues. >> and as we are watching the navajo nation just went by, their float, one of the things i saw today, melissa, is the whole changing of the demographics of america was reflected at the inauguration, as we look at native americans float goes by, as we heard a president for the first time refer in an inaugural address to same-sex marriage and to gay rights and talking about gender rights and he was sworn in on martin luther king's bible, had those of us in lead civil rights organizations, their labor organizations. they're on the platform. not in a guest seat somewhere else, right there only the platform. and martin luther king's son. i mean, i think that he was saying america has changed. and we've got to deal with the change and let's s
think almost all those moves are really good. what we need to do in almost every sector of the economy is move beyond our dependence on fossil fuel and invest in in clean energies instead. every time we do that we'll put more people to work, we'll cut emissions, and we'll keep our air clean and water safe. if we keep jesting in dirty fuel projects whether it's the tar sands from canada or the coal in the pacific northwest or fracking in west virginia, ohio and mission. michigan. the more we do what we're doing the more we'll stay stuck in the fossil fuel economy. >> cenk: you mentioned the sand stone there. >> when you hear a speech like the president made today it becomes clear that he's committed to fighting climate change. the first test, the first big test that the president will have is whether to approve or reject this pipeline. i'm confident that he'll reject it. i really am. you simply cannot be committed to fighting climate change and then simultaneously invest in the most dirty carbon-intensive oil source on the planet. this is the first test for the president whether he or n
with the economy bad and feeling washington needs to get its act together. >> joe? >> yeah. >> that asks -- that leads me to ask, you know, the group, what happens if within the white house, off of what mark just said, because this will be increasingly popular if the republicans continue to do things like this, what happens if the white house decides to try and pick off specific members of the republican membership in the house and perhaps some republicans in the senate and basically say people like you more now if you come and try and meet us halfway. what happens to this whole ball game if that occurs? >> i actually think the ball game is changing. the front of "the washington post" says that the gop offers respite on debt. "the new york times" also talks about how the republicans have gone ahead and pushed for -- obviously for this three-month extension that we're talking about. and mike, this goes back again to the republican party, not being conservative, not being moderate, but being smart. turning their back on their stupid ways as they set themselves up for punching bags which th
for my test, but they said, we can't default. don't hold the economy hostage any more. cut spending where you want to cut spending but don't use the debt limit to do it. they realize there is no political appetite in the business world in the regular world, and in the political world to hold the economy hostage in the way that they did in 2011. >> michael, tell me how in the world they gain leverage by having the fight over the budget or the sequester instead? i don't see it. >> there is something that nobody is talking about here, which is the political leverage that boehner wants right now. i think boehner needs to reassess. i think this is a retreat. give it to the senate for a while. let's get our troops back together and figure out what is going on here and then move forward again. i do agree with some the people who say this is a surrender because i think it's a political surrender for a moment. there is always strategy within the republican party. i don't think this is the kind of situation that will just go away. it is always kicking the can down, but i think there is a political
rates lower regulatory burdens, why didn't the bush--why didn't the economy take off in the decade of 2009. >> it gets to this most boring issue in the world back to the monetary and the crazy dollar destroyed nixon destroyed jimmy carter undermined george bush and none of them knew what hit them. president obama has no appreciation that the volatile dollar that the fed has done is making his task infinitely more difficult. they don't understand it. it has not been taught for decades in the schools. the eyes roll over when it comes up. who shot up lately. so by default bad things happen. >> gavin: some are concerned about money in politics, and the rise of the super pacs. we always had indulgences with wealthy people on both sides with independent ex-pen expenditures. is this healthy for our democracy? are you concerned honestly are you a little bit concerned about what is happening? >> what should be done is take that 76 law which put caps on giving and then the supreme court syd no for individuals and going down this path for 30 years. just throw the whole thing out. from my own
